new release the album 'A Thin Line' on April 5th 2013 album launch shows are: Sat April 6th The Toff In Town - Melbourne Sat April 20th The Hideaway Bar - Brisbane Fri April 26th The Brighten Up Bar - Sydney Early in 2012, with the proceeds of a fan-funded internet campaign, Blackchords took to a converted barn / studio in Victoria’s Yarra Valley to record their sophomore album – 'A Thin Line'. With Grammy winning producer David Odlum at the helm (former guitarist with The Frames, producer- The Frames, Gemma Hayes, Luka Bloom, Josh Ritter, Tinariwen), and Red Room’s Mark Stanley to assist, the band has taken an ambitious, diverse and energetic approach to the new songs, creating a sound which has evolved far beyond their own expectations. The result is A Thin Line, which whilst retains the dark and introspective soul of Blackchords, paints a broader and sometimes chimerical soundscape, drawing on keyboards, vintage guitars, FX and electronic programming previously unused by the band.

Another solid offering from these Melbourne indie boys. The vocal on this is killer - really controlled but full of emotion. I reckon I'll be humming this hook for the rest of the day.

Instant appeal w...
Instant appeal with an intro showcasing Blackchords melodic trademark guitar and keyboard sound that just makes you want to Dance, Dance, Dance and leads into the distinct tuneful sincere vocals of Nick Milwright. Blackchords have the ability to vary between a light pretty jauntiness required for a song like Dance Dance Dance or a more serious tone for a song like At World's End. A band to believe in.
